Veterinary Microbiology Master Programme
Qualification Awarded

Students are awarded with a Second Cycle Degree in Veterinary Microbiology upon succesful of all the requirments in the curriculum programme and fulfilling all other requirements.

Level of Qualification

Second Cycle Degree

Objectives

-to train the students as a scientist and researcher in the field of Veterinary Microbiology,

-to teach the students to access to information in the field of microbiology, evaluation and interpretation of the information,

-in addition to infectious animal diseases, to teach  updated information and the developments in general microbiology, immunology, molecular microbiology and epidemiology,

-to improve the students' skills and experience according to the development of technology,

-to improve the students' ability to communicate with clinical and para-clinical disciplines that are related with veterinary microbiology and the ability to interpret the information acquired from different disciplines.

Specific Admission Requirements

The graduates of the Veterinary Faculty, the Dentistry Faculty, the Science Faculty Department of Biology, the Fishery Products Faculty and the Nursing School can apply to the Veterinary Microbiology Second Cycle Degree Program. To apply for admission to the Second Cycle Degree in Parasitology, the prospective student should get at least 55 from (ALES) in the grade category that s/he is applying for, or should get the equivalent grade from GRE, or GMAT. In addition, the prospective student should get one of the exams from ÜDS or KPDS (national foreign language exams).

Specific Arrangements for Recognition of Prior Learning

Veteriner Microbiology Second Cycle Degree Programme students who are registered with vertical transfer have the right to request the recognition of their prior learning.

 1-  Upon successful completion of the program the student will be able to: gain knowledge on classification and anatomy of bacteria and fungi.
 2-  Gain knowledge on macroscopic and microscopic characteristics, virulence factors, antigenic components of bacteria and fungi, and laboratory techniques to determine these characteriscs.
 3-  Diagnose the infections by isolating and identifying the bacteria and fungi from various clinical samples.
 4-  Determine the susceptibility of microorganisms to the antimicrobials by various laboratory techniques.
 5-  Determine the characteristics of the infections in epidemiological aspect and control and prevention methods for the diseases in the field.
 6-  Comprehend the structure and function of immun system in various animals.
 7-  Perform serological tests for diagnosis of the infections.
 8-  Evaluate the results of serological tests for diagnosis of the infecitons.
 9-  Analyse the academical articles and thesis in the field of microbiology.
 10-  Perform a scientific project.
 11-  Write a master thesis and an academic article.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates

After completing the veteriner microbiology second cycle program, the students can work in both universities and private sector.

Access to Further Studies

After completing the veteriner microbiology second cycle program, the students will be eligible for third cycle education.

Examination Regulations, Assesment and Grading

Examinations are composed of one mid-term and one final exam. In order a student to take the final exam, s/he should attend at least 70% of theoretical courses and 80% of applied and laboratory studies. The examinations can be in written form, oral form, written-application form, oral-application form or project form. The course grade is calculated by adding 40% of mid-term grade to the 60% of the final exam. To be accepted as successful from the course, the second cycle degree students should get at least 70(CC) out of 100. The final exam results should be 70 (CC) in order to pass the course.

Graduation Requirements

The students should: 

-take total 120 ECTS credits (that consist of course credits, one seminar and thesis research work credits) and become sucsessful.  The students can take 30 ECTS credits in one term and 60 ECTS credits in one year ,

-obtain a cumulative grade point average of at least 70 on a 100 scale,

-prepare and defend thesis successfully.
